Campus Safety Information

Mission Statement: To provide a safe and secure environment conducive to promoting a respectful and educational atmosphere for all members and quests of the campus community.

Specific responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Campus patrol
  • Response to emergency situations on campus
  • Reporting and documenting criminal activity on campus property
  • Fire system evaluation, testing and monitoring
  • Coordination with law enforcement agencies and other emergency services
  • Safety/mechanical system monitoring for all campus buildings
  • Identify, assess and address possible safety hazards on campus property
  • Collect lost and found property and maintain inventory of items

Wayne Morse, assistant director of plant operations, may be reached by email, phone at 660-248-6298, or in person at the Plant Operations Building during normal business hours. Safety and security concerns or related issues may be referred to him at any time.

Parking Permits and Enforcement

Campus parking permits and ticketing appeals are handled through the office of student development. Plant Operations is responsible for enforcing parking regulations.

Safety Reports

Unfortunately, criminal activity occurs on university campuses. To assist in keeping students, parents and employees well informed about campus security and safety, the student Right-To-Know and Clery Act requires the University to disclose crime and fire statistics for specific crimes.
